Override robots.txt Exclusion

by Kohjah Breese   Last Updated September 01, 2019 02:04 AM

I use robots.txt to block all robots.txt compliant bots from a directory like this:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /sub/*

How can I override this so to allow Mediapartners-Google (AdSense) to /sub/?

Adding this at the top of the robots.txt works:

User-agent: Mediapartners-Google

N.B. you may need AdSense to download your robots.txt again, which I believe they do on a 24hr basis.
